AMO Corporation (www.amo-inc.com) is proud to announce the release of the new IP67-rated LMB-410 Spar Linear Encoder, which will be spotlighted at the 2010 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at McCormick Place, Chicago on September 13 to 18. The company’s stall will be found in Booth #E-5220 inside the Quality Assurance Pavilion located in the Lakeside Center (East) Building.
The new LMB-410 offers robust measuring/position feedback with IP-67 rating and performance similar to a linear optical encoder. The LMB-410, operating on an inductive scanning principle, is best suited for general purpose machines, such as medical equipment, printing equipment, machine tools and military/aerospace applications. Its IP67 rating makes the machine ideal for dirty or contaminated conditions including being fluid submersible.
Its adhesive-free mounting spar with a snap cover eliminates concerns related to adhesive-backed spars becoming loose in oily environments. Its encoder head is equipped with wipers to automatically clean spar scale during operation. The encoder head’s gain compensation and auto offset eliminate the need to use a test box during setup.
The LMB-410 is rated for operation that ranges from -40 to +120°C for any measuring length ± 5 micron/m linearity. The new encoder also meets high-shock, high-speed and vibration specifications.
